Her choreographies and artistic productions are created in a wide variety of contexts.

She also regularly develops performative and circus works with children and young people.
In the artists' collective mind_the_gut, she realised cross-genre works from 2009 - 2013 in collaboration with Johanna Roggan and artists from art disciplines such as film, music, interactive design, acting and others.

Rebekka also works in the fields of cultural education (e.g. with Neue Nationalgalerie), conceptualisation and project coordination. She has organised cultural days, dance and exhibition events, coordinated festivals and assisted with dance and theatre productions.
She also teaches contemporary dance in Germany and abroad, leads workshops, performance projects and worked as a circus trainer in the Cabuwazi circus and in the Beyond Borders project with refugee children and young people. Since her formation in bungee dance and the immersion in vertical/harness dance techniques, she has also teaches dance on an elastic/static rope, playing with the flying body.
